Review of the season 4: Overall 9/10
22 December 2015 | by (Lithuania) – See all my reviews

Greetings from Lithuania.

"Breaking Bad" Season 4 is a terrific season. With arguably the best "face/off" between good guy and the bad guy at the end of any series ever, this season is the last before the final, and masterpieces season 5.

Writing, directing, cinematography, acting is in a top notch as usual, but it is the storytelling that makes this season best after first 3 unforgettable seasons. Don't get me wrong, i love every each of them, but this one improved a bit in almost every in comparison to previous ones. As usual for each season, there is "The Unfogetable Scene" in this one as well, as you probably all know to which one particularly i'm pointing my finger, "Face/Off" left me speechless, literally.

Overall, this is a great season on all accounts. Because by this time almost everyone has already seen it (and i'm re-watching whole series for the second time), i can only recommend it to see it second time, this is a blast.
